Two new cast members have been added for Outlander season three.  Geneva Dunsany will be played by Hannah James and Isobel Dunsany will be played by Tanya Reynolds.  I have avoided any spoilers from Voyager in the below character descriptions.

On Geneva Dunsany:

“Born the second child and eldest daughter of Lord and Lady Dunsany, Geneva was raised alongside her older brother, Gordon, and younger sister, Isobel. Gordon was killed in the Battle of Prestonpans during the Jacobite Rising of 1745; the Dunsanys took the loss very hard, and perhaps as a consequence cherished and spoiled their daughters even more than before. On her family’s large estate, Geneva enjoyed handling and riding horses, possessing a good hand with them. At age seventeen, Geneva is forced to marry an elderly earl, but she has a few notions of what she will and will not accept about her lot in life.

On Isobel Dunsany:

Born the youngest child of Lord and Lady Dunsany, Isobel was raised alongside her older brother, Gordon, and older sister, Geneva. Gordon was killed in the Battle of Prestonpans during the Jacobite Rising of 1745; the Dunsanys took the loss very hard, and perhaps as a consequence cherished and spoiled their daughters even more than before.

In 1756, Isobel is a “small and round and bubbly” fourteen-year-old.

Hannah James is 23 years old and an American actress who is half British.  She is most known for her role as Emma Green on Mercy Street.  You can follow Hannah on Twitter and Instagram.

Tanya Reynolds is English and can be seen in a short called Introducing Lucy and the upcoming film, Fanny Lye Deliver’d.  You can follow Tanya on Twitter.

    Hannah looks like a lovely choice for Geneva. When I saw her picture, I thought she might have been a good choice for Bree (with those striking blue eyes), but like Sophie, she’s not quite tall enough.
